The president's approval rating is down 7 percentage points from the 40 percent rating he received in a similar poll in the last week of June. The polls used in his average split Trump's approval rating into four categories: strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove and strongly disapprove. The pollster said that Americans by a 54-to-26 percent margin said they are embarrassed rather than proud to have Trump as president.

Trump's approval rating has been sliding downward over the past couple of weeks before it reached 39 percent on Monday, according to Fran Coombs, the managing editor of Rasmussen Reports, which is the president's favorite because it has consistently given him better marks than other polls.

All of that helped push Trump's approval to a record low in this poll.

ADVERTISEMENTThe president, in previous months, has touted the Rasmussen poll on Twitter, calling it "one of the most accurate in the 2016 Election" while bragging about his approval rating at the time.
